Reviews

"No other book has documented Polish American folklore as thoroughly as this does. Silverman provides excellent historical, social, and cultural contexts in her presentation of many expressions of Polish American culture, such as Easter and Christmas celebrations, rites of passage, religious traditions, folk medicine, folk song, folk dance (with a special chapter devoted to the polka), folk games, folk arts and crafts, and foodways... She does a superb job of incorporating parallel examples from relevant studies of other ethnic groups." -- Choice ADVANCE PRAISE "In a work impeccably researched and alive with the cultural experiences of individuals, Deborah Anders Silverman illuminates the folklore of Polish Americans, from polkas to pierogi, from wigilia to weddings. A must for every Polish American and for anyone else curious about the human dimensions of ethnicity in a pluralistic society." -- James P. Leary, director of the folklore program, University of Wisconsin
